Originals and Unique Pieces
To own an original or unique piece of a work of art is the goal of every art lover. Because an artistic work of art is particularly fascinating when you know that the artist has produced it by hand with great effort. Moreover, when purchasing unique pieces and original paintings, you can be sure that you are the only one in the world who owns this work. Due to this exclusivity, it is primarily the unique pieces that often experience a significant increase in value. Original works made by the artist also occupy a special status from an aesthetic point of view because they allow enjoyment of art that only they can offer. For example, only an original painting allows the materials used and the artist's painting technique to be directly understood. Compared to a reproduction, every brushstroke or impasto application of paint is visible, the surface has a recognisable structure, and the colours have a unique sheen and a special radiance.
The so-called "serial unique pieces" play a special role among the unique pieces. These are also produced individually by the artist but have the same or very similar motifs and are made with identical colours and the same technique. A series, repetition or variation of an object or theme are part of the artistic concept, and the works are just as unique and valuable as other originals. Signatures and/or certificates prove the authenticity of these serial works.
The price of unique pieces is usually higher compared to other pictures because the artist has created the artwork by hand. However, many high-quality originals by younger or not yet well-known artists are quite affordable, so you only have to pay prices ranging from three to low four figures for many handmade paintings.
